The stock engine of the AMG GT and GT S is the 4-litre V8 unit, making it possible for the GT series to unleash 456 hp (340 kW) at 6,000 rpm and 600 Nm (441 lb-ft); and for the GT S series: 503 hp (375 kW) at 6,250 rpm and 650 Nm (480 lb-ft).
These numbers serve well to make a comparison to the result after the tuning, which is clocking 595 hp (443 kW) at 6,100 rpm and an impressive 750 Nm (554 lb-ft) of maximum torque, available at 4,900 rpm. When it comes to acceleration time, both model versions cut the time to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h to 3.6 seconds. In addition, the Lorinser-powered coupes reache 200 km/h in 10.1 seconds, driving on their way to the 300 km/h top speed.
The powerful uprating is complemented by RSK 8 light-alloy wheels, sized 20- and 21- inches at the front and rear, respectively. They were then fitted with 265/30 R20 at the front and 305/25 R21 at the rear. And this is all. It is not much, but still enough to enjoy a quality ride. And very fast one, too.
